Quotes about youth

“In youth we learn; in age we understand.”

Marie Von Ebner-Eschenbach

“Youth is easily deceived, because it is quick to hope.”

Aristotle

“You can only be young once. But you can always be immature.”

Dave Barry

“The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.”

Friedrich Nietzsche

“There is a fountain of youth: It is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring in your life and the lives of people you love.”

Sophia Loren

“The error of youth is to believe that intelligence is a substitute for experience, while the error of age is to believe experience is a substitute for intelligence.”

Ernest Hemingway

“Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up interest wrinkles the soul. You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope as old as your despair. In the central place of every heart there is a recording chamber. So long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer and courage, so long are you young. When your heart is covered with the snows of pessimism and the ice of cynicism, then, and then only, are you grown old. And then, indeed as the ballad says, you just fade away.”

Douglas MacArthur

Quotes about flattery.

There are often awkward moments when smart people use flattery in public. Other people listen to them and think: “Why are they doing it? Don’t they understand that everybody knows that they simply want to get a favor from people they describe in terms that are not true?”

Today I found some quotes about flattery that I want to share with you.

“Flattery corrupts both the receiver and the giver.”

Edmund Burke

“Nothing is so great an example of bad manners as flattery. If you flatter all the company, you please none; If you flatter only one or two, you offend the rest.”

Jonathan Swift

“None are more taken in by flattery than the proud, who wish to be the first and are not.”

Baruch Spinoza

“Between flattery and admiration there often flows a river of contempt.”
